Dakota Meyer will become the first living Marine to be awarded the Medal of Honor for actions in an ongoing conflict since the Vietnam War. He ran a gauntlet of fire 5 times to save 36 of his buddies. Outstanding and well done Marine!

"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a brave and scarce man, hated and scorned. When the cause succeeds, however, the timid join him... for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." -Mark Twain
You mess with the bull, You get the horns!
No matter how you slice it, this was an incredible accomplishment by an incredible human being. You can imagine the pride this has inspired in millions of Americans, and it is well deserved. I understand Cpl. Meyer's humility but I hope he can appreciate how proud we are of his actions. He really earned it and deserves it. Likewise to Rodriguez-Chavez and his other buddies who helped that day. The odds were stacked against you guys and you met them and overcame them. A bad situation would have been much worse had it not been for you.
